Giving Back During the Holiday Season
We are raising money for Heifer Project International by having a winter raffle in the classroom. Each ticket costs 50 cents and each student can sell as many as they wish (as long as they have sold and turned in the previous ten). When the 22nd of December comes around, we are going to draw tickets and win prizes! But, the real meaning of this is to get as much money raised as possible. We are going to give all the money toward giving a needy family an animal that could provide for them. Beatrice’s family was one of many that was helped from this cause.
We are raising money for Heifer Project International by selling tickets to friends, siblings, and family. All of the money goes to helping poor families raise money by donating animals to them. And we are helping, too!
When we read the book Beatrice’s Goat, I learned that goats can be special.

We are raising money for the Heifer project by getting tickets from our teacher (10 of them) then selling them each for 50 cents each. Then once we sell all the tickets it will go to a total for 5 dollars.
I am going to see my family and ask if they want raise money to relate to the book Beatrice’s Goat.
